Clare Southall

Clare has a particular specialism in developing Challenger teams so that they can work creatively with uncertainty and disagreement. She is particularly skilled in creating a safe and supportive environment in which both teams and individuals can learn and develop. Her engaging style balances challenge with compassion and a light touch.

Currently her work includes coaching and facilitating senior leaders and their teams undergoing considerable change, enabling them to identify a collective ambition, and to create and lead the culture, environment and spirit needed to challenge their respective markets. She is interested in developing a relationship led, rather than a programme led approach to change in organisations, believing that real and lasting change happens more effectively through conversation, relationship, and inquiry than simply through executing a plan. In her coaching she is interested in taking executives beyond their intellect to deeper levels of reflection on their leadership and purpose – who they need to be, not just what they have to do.
